What is the best time to take a Quantitative Serum Beta HCG test?

What is the best time to take a Quantitative Serum Beta HCG test?

3 wks after sex: There is no need to rush. A pregnancy test gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 wks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period. If done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon, and thus lead to a repeat test. If a woman gets her normal regular period, then she is not pregnant, and a test isn't needed.

What does serum beta hCG report less than 15 mean?

What does serum beta hCG report less than 15 mean?

Not very pregnant: Usually HCG is reported as less than 5 if negative. 15 would usually mean positive, but it depends on the lab. Find out their normal level, but it sounds like you are just a little bit pregnant.

what did your OB say: Did u discuss with your OB because your OB is the one who should be telling u this because obviously if they are following your betas then they want to make sure the preg is ok., it went up 66% in 2 days , i wait 3 days as it should double in 3 days so for now it is normal rise, I am sure your OB will be getting an ultrasound on you around 7 weeks to see the htbeat , then u know for certain.

Check results : Since you know and have access to all of the exact numbers included in the calculation you should also have access to the actual results. You should see the word "normal" or "abnormal" written on the results. This represents the mathematical calculation of the test from each of those numbers you mentioned.

See below: If you did the blood test more than one day after a missed period and HCG was <3, you are not pregnant. How was the blood test positive if HCG was < 3.0?

Late period: Sometimes a period is late. If it does not come within the next week consider repeat blood HCG and follow up with a doctor /urgent care and a sonogram to evaluate intrauterine /ectopic pregnancy

6weeks pregnant Beta HCG Blood result 29810 .What does it mean? Thank you

6weeks pregnant Beta HCG Blood result 29810 .What does it mean? Thank you

Need more info: Their is a wide range of hcg levels that could be normal at or around six weeks pregnant. Normally at an hcg level of nearly 30K you should see a fetus with a heart beat on the US exam. Also if the level is repeated it should increase. Hope this helps.

Does the hCG diet (using injections) effect the beta hCG in a quantatative blood test?

Does the hCG diet (using injections) effect the beta hCG in a quantatative blood test?

Beta HCG : A very good question. The pills and injections given in the "hcg diet" will cause blood and urine levels of bhcg to rise. However, two measurements, a week or more apart, should differentiate between pregnancy ( where the levels will rise predictably) and diet drugs, assuming you are taking a constant dose for the diet treatments.

Is checking my beta hCG by blood accurate enough to get a result 1 week after having protected sex- condom?

Is checking my beta hCG by blood accurate enough to get a result 1 week after having protected sex- condom?

Wait longer: A urine pregnancy test gives a reliable result if done correctly and read correctly, the week after missing a period, or 3 weeks after having sex.

I have done my beta hCG test on 9th oct 2012. It is positive. But I have been given hCG injection on 3rd oct, may be due to that my hCG blood report ?

I have done my beta hCG test on 9th oct 2012. It is positive. But I have been given hCG injection on 3rd oct, may be due to that my hCG blood report  ?

Why did you take: Hcg injection? The half life of HCG is from 0.5 to 4 days, depending on the level. Your blood levels of HCG would depend on the dose of hcg, and any stabilizer. You need to address the matter with your doctor with information about last menstrual period, episodes of sex, any medications etc. If you are taking HCG injections to lose weight, you are wasting your money and jeopardizing your health!

On CD21 is it to soon to get a positive beta hCG blood test? I recieved a negative result on CD21. Do i still have a chance of being pregnant?

On CD21 is it to soon to get a positive beta hCG blood test? I recieved a negative result on CD21. Do i still have a chance of being pregnant?

Patience: Patience. A pregnancy test done correctly should give a reliable result 3 weeks after sex or 1 week after missing a period. Done too soon, a negative pregnancy test might be a false negative. Generally, there is no need to test too soon. Also, a woman is not pregnant if she gets her normal, regular period; meaning she should not need a pregnancy test unless she misses her usual, regular period.

Not routinely: If the ordering doctor has a concen about very high HCG levels, as may happen in some tumors, s/he should notify the lab so that a dilution may be done.

Yes: If your b-hcg is 21685, your pregnant. Someone had to order the lab and inform you of the results. I am curious what they told you. Good luck with pregnancy.

What does it mean to have a high beta Hcg blood test? Mine was 3,031 am I have twins

What does it mean to have a high beta Hcg blood test? Mine was 3,031 am I have twins

Need a sonogram: The ranges of normal betaHCG for singleton and multiple pregnancies are very wide and are not very useful to answer your question. You will need a pregnancy sonogram to tell if you "have twins".
